PitmasterIQ vs BBQ Guru

How does the PitmasterIQ compare to the BBQ Guru? The IQ110, IQ120 and IQ130 all differ from the BBQ Guru PartyQ, DigiQ and CyberQ because they are fully integrated Automatic Barbecue Controllers. PitmasterIQ integrates a variable speed blower with the controls and delivers air to the fire with a heavy duty rubber tube. The variable speed blower automatically adjusts to your cooker's air demand, delivering between 5 and 15 Cubic Feet per Minute as needed.

The PitmasterIQ IQ110 is the most affordable and easiest-to-use automatic barbecue temperature control. It has a single control knob which sets the temperature you wish to cook at. A temperature sensing probe clips to the cooking grate in the Weber Grill, Big Green Egg, Weber Smokey Mountain, Gateway Drum Smoker, Assassin Smoker, Stumps Smoker, Myron Mixon Smoker, etc. The blower is pulses on and off and its speed varies to maintain the set temperature automatically! A red or green LED indicates when the cooking temperature is in range, too cold or too hot..

The PitmasterIQ IQ120 takes the IQ110 up a couple of notches. It adds a digital display and food probe. The display gives exact cooking and food temperatures. The analog control of the IQ110 is replaced by a digital encoder to set the desired cooking temperature. Other parameters include Food Done alarms and programmable cooking temperature changes.

The PitmasterIQ IQ130 features also include a second food probe and Smartphone connectivity. It uses a long range, Bluetooth Low Energy module to hook up with qSmart, the free simple-to-use app, to make remote monitoring and control a breeze! Program an alarm to let you know when your food is done and your Smartphone wakes you from napping on the couch! Now THAT's how to smoke meat in the 21st century!
